Your chances of success at quirky are extremely slim. 99.9% of you won't get your product picked (the odds are actually worse than that). You have as much of a chance at being another "Jake Zien" as you do at being Bill Gates of Microsoft. You probably won't make a 4 figure income per year. In fact you most likely won't even make a 3 figure income a year. Despite what Ben says, Quirky does NOT make millionaires. There is no quirky member here that has made that much--just a smoke and mirrors comment. It is not all bad: You can meet some pretty cool people here and learn something from them. That is the upside. NO SPAM IN MY PROPS AREAS (a.k.a. pimping). Props spam gets deleted.
